The Linux Mint OS, an operating system based on the Ubuntu flavor, has a new rollout, the Mint 15 which looks and feels as pretty as its code name, “Olivia”.
Users and fans alike will find that Olivia has awesome upgrades to its desktop environment and interface , ‘MATE 1.6′ and ‘Cinnamon 1.8′, respectively. Linux Mint has been very favored ever since it has began production, as some would say that it has a more ‘complete usability’ in terms of straight-from-the-box experience as compared to other Linux flavors like Ubuntu; Mint has additional Java, Flash plugins, and other proprietary software that can’t be found in a lot of other Linux distributions. In the new Mint 15/Olivia, users will also be treated to additional updates for managing various software, called ‘MintSources’ as well as a new process of managing drivers.
Linux Mint 15 is still in its “Release Candidate” stage, which means that it still has a lot ways to go but it does have a final release that’s coming later maybe in a few months or by the end of this year.
